Try to use an external monitor. If problem still persists, possible graphics driver problem. You might need to do a system recovery

It appears that you most likely have a bad video inverter. This is a fairly common problem with Toshiba Laptops. The cost of an inverter ranges from $40-$60

I am not sure what brand of laptop you have. In any case. Do the following 1. Turn the laptop off 2. Turn the laptop back on while tapping on the F8 key. 3. Choose the option to go to safe mode 4. In safe mode right click on my computer, then left click on properties, then click on hardware tab(Windows XP) 5. Click device manager button 6. Scroll to your video adapter and uninstall the drivers 7. Do the same for items on monitors 8. Reboot the computer and let the computer detect the devices again. 9. You may need the drivers cd that shipped with the laptop ( and sometimes the laptop loads the drivers from a default location on the hdd.) This should resolve the problem.

Display shows lines and color not displayed properly


A line vertically down the screen (usually bright green) is a failed column strobe. This can be caused by the connections at the top of the screen failing or the strobe chip starting to die.

Random colours can be caused by a cracked screen or a failed video card.

Best to take it to a repair shop for it to be assessed.

Display barely readable


First I will suggest you to update your graphic drivers just go the site of your Laptop manufacture. Once there enter the model number of the laptop then request driver (usually found in the web site's "Support Section"). There you should be able to find all the drivers for your model laptop
Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues
If this solution is helpless then get the Reginout to fix all the registry issues and errors which causing these annoying issues

Gateway laptop vertical dotted lines across the screen


Sounds like a problem with the LCD assembly or cable. You may want to reseat the LCD cable at the LCD end. It could be a loose internal connector in the LCD assembly.
